Description

New mums need no convincing that their children are wonderfully made. But there are a whole heap of challenges that come with caring for young children—tiredness, loneliness, relationship stress to name a few.

Many churches have large and well attended groups for mothers and their children to support them through these stressful years, but find it more difficult to find ways of sharing the good news of the gospel to them.

Wonderfully Made is an innovative approach to this dilemma. Short video sessions connect with stressed parents where they are at—with the problems and questions that come with small children. There is practical advice in each session on being a new parent, and sympathetic stories from young mums.

But each session also points to a greater reality—the God who made us, our children and is a parent himself! The short talks by Mary Winter introduce us to the big ideas of who we are and why we are here from the early chapters of Genesis, and provokes discussion that will lead on to deeper thinking about God.

The seven sessions on this DVD will help you support new mothers and carers as they adjust to life with small children, and introduce them to the big themes of the gospel message.

Commendations

If you have run a Toddlers' Group, you will know that one of the big challenges is how to make them more than a fun morning for the children. Mary Winter has provided us with an easy way to start a discussion about how God has "wonderfully made" us. They show that none of us is here by accident, even though we might have been a surprise to our parents! 
I wish this course had been around when I was beginning my parenting journey.

Toddler groups present a small but significant window for bridge-building with the local community, but so much more could be done with and for people at this most vulnerable and insecure period of their lives—and that is just the parents. This brilliant collection of short, sensible and practical sessions provide a user-friendly tool for many such groups. Most parents love talking about their children and that is where these sessions begin, but the material gently and fearlessly takes parents to the good and bad news about children, and about us: a gospel opportunity on a plate.

I absolutely love this material and cannot wait for the next opportunity to use it. I think it is a fantastic first step before people are ready for Christianity Explored.

Wonderfully Made is not only accessible but engaging, good for discussion and has just the right balance of Bible, questions and real life parents sharing their experience with humility and a good dose of humour!

“A good resource to encourage parents to explore God's design”

(Review written for 'Wonderfully Made (Handbook)')

A good conversation starter that can be taken to any level. This material is thought provoking and relevant for today's parents.

“Excellent resource”

We have just finished using this material with five non-church mums. We ran it after our parent & toddler group. We provided lunch & a creche. They have engaged more openly and positively with it than I could have ever imagined. They are all keen to do more together as a group, & to know more about what the church is about. We have bought 3 copies of the DVD & I'm encouraging church mums to use it in their homes with friends.

“Great Resource”

I have been using this resource over the last couple of months with a group that was set up to try and engage the mothers from our Toddler group. We ran a parenting group at the beginning of last year with an end session covering purely the spiritual development of a child. I have been using both the parenting questions and the spiritual questions from the Wonderfully Made book in the group, it seemed like the next step, to introduce the parents to why we are fearfully and wonderfully made. I would highly recommend this series

“Helpful resource for "one to ones" too”

My church doesn't have a toddler group but I went through this course with a 'mum friend' who I've met locally.
The material is really accessible, assuming very little (if any) knowledge of the God of the Bible, and the testimonies are easy to relate to. I thought the session on sin was particularly well done, as it's a difficult topic to introduce.
My friend and I really enjoyed it and found Mary Winter very gracious and clear. I highly recommend trying this with mums, even if your toddler group doesn't have any Christian content.
